Bruce Willis is reportedly annoyed enough with his daughters to "cut off his their allowances."
Bruce shares Rumer, 23, Scout, 21, and Tallulah, 18, with ex-wife actress Demi Moore.
Demi broke down and went to rehab in the wake of her recent divorce from Ashton Kutcher.
It's thought that her daughters haven't been speaking to her of late, as they believe their mother wants to remain "in her misery."
"They've been bad-mouthing her for being too needy, and that's totally unacceptable to Bruce," a source told the US edition of OK! magazine. "Bruce is still very protective of Demi, and he hates how bratty the girls are being toward her right now. He controls their purse strings, and he's threatening to cut off their allowances if they don't start showing their mother some compassion."
Demi is distraught by her daughters' silent treatment and is even more dismayed that they still speak to Ashton.
"Demi feels so betrayed and alone," the source revealed. "Demi refuses to accept that Ashton was like a second father to them and they miss him."
Scout and Tallulah seem to be dogged about dismissing their mother, but Rumer is open to reuniting the family.
"Now Bruce is leaning on Rumer to lead by example and get everyone back together," the insider said.
